Skied the man-made trails and some of the natural trails. The man-made trails were in good condition, and the natural trails pretty good, although there were a few thin spots.

Skied the north loop in the Lake trail on the natural snow. Excellent conditions, bring your good skis. There were only a couple of small areas where the ground was showing through. Great to get off the man-made track.

I’m sure that with the recent snowfall(s) everywhere is great right now, but the Hyland natural trails are in some of the best shape I’ve seen. Maybe one or two dirty spots from the groomer churning up some soil, but those are easily avoidable. Grab your good skis and go ski the Lake loop/Hill trail. It’s not often that they’re this nice!

Skied man-made and natural loops. Skating deck fine on all, though some very dirty spots on natural, especially leading to Richardson nature center. Classic tracks good, but icy on man-made. Natural tracks, except for Lake trail, haven't been reset in a while; tracks washed out in places. It's a pity these natural trails aren't kept up, as we don't get many days with enough snow to enjoy them.

As good as it gets at Hyland. The grooming was perfect and the sun was shining! Skied every trail today from north to south and east to west. A spectacular day of skiing. Kudos to the groomers who always get it right at Hyland.

Excellent conditions and grooming! I skied classic on some of the natural snow trails (Hill and Lake) and all the snowmaking trails. I was happy to see that they had two parallel sets of classic tracks from Boulder Ridge back to the race start area. When I'm skiing with friends or family, it's nice sometimes to be able to ski side-by-side. And there's still plenty of room for skating (which I also do at least half my outings). I know there's probably not enough room on all the trails for two sets of classic tracks and skate deck, but where it's wide enough, it's nice to have it.
